The Ferrara Pan candy factory offers a Virtual Tour, which shows different stages of the
manufacturing process of making hard candy known as "atomic fireballs." A series of
animated images shows the processing steps that go from raw materials to product packaging. It's not quite the same as a visit to the plant, but it really gives a feeling of what the industrial process looks like.
Hopefully other factories will do the same thing, to satisfy everyone curious about how things are made.
